But there is a lot to be said about a true family album (10,000 words of my dissertation to be precise!) and having these memories selected and preserved in hard copy is something that is really important. So far I've managed to make a few books of Theo's first years, but for however many photos I take we have a severe lack of prints to hang on the wall or stick into an album.
So together with a great competition being held by Photoworld, I thought I would take the time to share a few of our favourite memories captured.
Travel: Those of you who know me well will understand the deep rooted joy that travelling and discovering a new place brings me. It's a need I have, and given long periods of time without a journey or new sights I feel withdrawn and less like myself. Adventure runs through my veins, and climbing a tall hill to see a the whole view will never stop tempting me.
I love the idea of sharing your favourite memories, so that's why the #weprintmemories competition held by Photoworld is so great! Each week you are given the opportunity to share your favourite memory, within that weeks theme for your chance to win some great prizes. These include:
